Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US
The city of Chicago has a dark history of disaster and death, from devastating fires (Iroquois Theatre), horrific accidents (S.S. Eastland) and dreadful events (St. Valentine's Day Massacre). Let my Edward Gorey-inspired map help guide you to 14 sites known among ghost hunters and paranormal investigators to be the most active. Even if you don't believe in such otherworldly phenomenon, perhaps my map will lure you into discovering something new about Chicago's spellbinding history.

This is a map of special memories from Captain's life. It features his favorite snacks (even a chicken nugget), his special toys, and even his challenges (like bathtime). Cappie was my best little pup, and he passed away Jan. 2020. This is my first ever They Draw & - project (I'm a big fan of all of them!) and I'm so glad that I finally attempted one. This was very therapeutic for me; I miss Captain every day, but making this map was a joyful process, and now I think I'm hooked. I see more drawings in my future!
Materials - prismacolor pencils, koi watercolor, sharpie fine point marker, and love (on watercolor paper)
I illustrated a travel guide of the moon, highlighting popular activities and notable sites. All mostly imagined, of course. Prominent moon legends such as the man in the moon, the moon rabbit and the werewolf make an appearance, along with space visitors Laika and flying monkeys. And robots. I modeled this illustration after atomic space age design from the 1960s and 1970s.
